The Atlanta Falcons are still reeling from their embarrassing loss in Week 2 against the Dallas Cowboys. After holding a huge lead in the fourth quarter, the Falcons ended up falling by a final score of 40-39 due to their massive mistake on an onside kick.

In Week 3, the Falcons will have to pick themselves up and play a tough matchup against the Chicago Bears. Coming into this week’s game, the Bears are 2-0. They have looked better offensively and still have a talented defense as well.

Matt Ryan and the Atlanta offense has to feel good about their performance last week. They put up good numbers, but the defense and special teams units could not close the game out.

Beating the Bears is a must if the Falcons want to have a shot at making the playoffs. Falling to 0-3 would be a near death sentence to their season. It would also force the Falcons to consider firing head coach Dan Quinn.

All of that being said, let’s dive in and take a look at four bold predictions for the Falcons this week as they face off against the Bears.
